...Marty Brown was apparently pulling for Yosuke Takasu to record 6 hits in Wednesday's 13-4 drubbing of the Chiba Lotte Marines.  He then told reporters that he once got 6 hits in one day....  After a double-header.

Takasu's 5 hits in one game also established a new club high.

...Juan Morillo topped out at 157km/h during his outing on Wednesday.

...Koji Aoyama was demoted to Ni-gun on Thursday, most likely due to the pain that kept him from throwing more than 2 pitches in Wednesday night's game against the Chiba Lotte Marines.  Conditioning coach Minoru Kumahara told reporters that it seemed as though Aoyama was feeling pain in his left flank during bullpen warm-ups before the game.

...Jin Nakatani was demoted to Ni-gun on Wednesday after complaining of some pain his right calf. He apparently injured the area during pre-game practice on Tuesday.
